Ok its a Hp f500 pentium dual core 2 gb ram. Not sure how old as it was giving to me by someone as they said it did not work.
I worked out that hdd was knackered so replaced it and loaded win 7 pro, and it all worked. But then i noticed how hot the side was by the fan. And i doubt the fan has ever been cleaned. Im not too good with laptops so dont know whats what.
